I’ve got some varmint taking out my beans. It’s really annoying. I suspected a vole, but, would a vole cut down the beans and then drag them under the overhanging thyme and sage in the next bed? I’ve got something like a tiny beaver, felling beanstalks and then hauling them to the adjacent garden bed to hide under herbs. These stalks are freshly wilted!I thought I already had scapes. These are the second round of late or postponed scapery. Almost as much as the first round. I’ve got some garlic.
The fence posts I put in this spring are growing. Three new garden fence posts are sprouting a half dozen lush plumes of leaves. This isn’t too surprising, fenceposts are known to do that, but the posts are in upside down. Opposite of the way the tree was growing before I cut it down. So the wood has decided to reverse the flow of sap? Root from the skyward end? That’s wild. In the greenhouse, the peanuts fold their leaves tightly closed every night like prayer hands. I like this reactionary plant movement. Plants have their own responsive awareness.
